Irish Heritage Garden shows off plantings between hardscapes
Mar 25, 2015 7:30 PM - It's called an Irish Heritage Garden, and it features Midwest versions of plants that impart that region's famous beauty. But Padraig Conway's inspirations come from all over the world. Conway, who operates Cottswold Gardens Inc., says the hardscape comes first, especially in Ireland -- patio, walkways, steps, walls and even water features -- before the green plants that evoke Gaelic regions. England is known more for flowers and roses, he said.
